A Day of Remembrance......

Sep 112019

18 years ago our country was attacked. Innocent lives were lost. So today, we

remember those lives that we lost, the rescue teams that saved lives, or died trying

to, and the loved ones affected by this tragedy. 

 

Constructors Bonding Inc. wanted to acknowledge today and all that was affected.

You are all in our thoughts.
